Autodesk Design ?

So I have been building my robot on autodesk inventor and I had really one question, is there an efficient way of placing chain links/tank treads other than placing each one one by one.

There are many ways to do it. They are all a bit complicated.

Still no way to make them animate tho.

Not in Inventor, I did it in 3ds max in the Clean Sweep animation.

Actually, there is a way to animate them, but not sure if you would want to go this route.

is the easist way
